Joanne’s Answer

Science is more theory. You'll learn about hardware and software.
Engineering is more hands on. You'll get to play with creating computer systems and learn about their inner workings.

Computer science focuses mostly on troubleshooting issues on a software level. Expect to learn different programming languages,
how to work with operating systems and how to maintain databases, integrating applications, design websites and many more.

Computer engineering focuses on solving problems and designing hardware and software interfaces; just like a support engineer
who helps you make your computer/laptop working when its gone dead.
